For an after work brew it works. I could even go for a cold on during the some.
Light easy drinking with slight hop flavor, builds character.

Can from Tanakaya. Drank straight from the can. Good light cracker aroma with juicy citrus and light pine on the nose. Good carbonation and well-balanced on the palate. Light cracker to biscuity malt with classic American hop flavor. Nice and refreshing bitter finish. Definitely more of a session IPA than a lager, but fine by me.

Pours clear copper with a puffy white head, very good retention. Aromas of grass, grapefruit, earth, biscuit. Light body, good carbonation. Gentle sweet, mild bitter finish. Pretty bitter for a lager, but still quite quaffable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades relatively quickly leaving only a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – This beer smells like cheerios. It is super heavy in a grainy and cerealy smell with some aromas of a lighter sweet fruit of peach and apricot with a little bit of a caramel sweetness rounding it out as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter fruit flavor of a light pear, apricot, and peach along with some decent showing of a bready and cheerios like flavor that was detected in the nose. These flavors make a base taste for the brew with some light changes occurring as the taste moves on. More toward the middle of the flavor profile some light hay and grassy hop tastes start coming to the tongue. The cereal and grain increase in intensity more toward the end with some of the lighter fruit being replaced by some caramel and leaving a nice somewhat sweet, but still crisp and easy drinking cerealy taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average to a little thicker side for a 5 % abv. lager with a carbonation that is on the slightly lower side. The feel and carbonation were decent for the style as they did a nice job for both the lighter fruit and lager characteristics all while upholding the lighter hop and cereal tastes of the brew nicely. Personally however, I would have liked a little bit more carbonation to make it slightly more refreshing, but overall it was good.
Overall – A rather nice drinking, slightly sweeter, and grainy in nature lager. This would be a great beer to have while sitting around a campfire and chatting or good for a day of football watching with some friends. Sessionable, flavorful, and overall a nice brew.

Good quality lager with a nice clean well balanced character. New Belgium has gone for the big market with all their brews. With this one it works.
